    I have one of the NAMM Metros VIntage 4's & it totally compares to my NYC Sadowsky Vintage 4 in every way except price.

    I played them and as Nino says they compare in every way to the NYC line. I think a 24 fret Metro is in order here :D

    Nino, when you finally get sick of this bass (and I know you will) would you kindly let me know! I love that bass... And I would love to have a nice Sadowsky in amongst all the Laklands!

    Hi!

    They are worth every penny. I had #2 for a month before I had a chance to pick up Nino's NYC quilt top which forced the sale. People, don't hesitate!! Order one. They rock. Just like my NYC's but quite a bit less in price.

    If I got them for free, I'd have alot more than 4.

    BTW, out of the 4 I currently own, only 2 (Metro & Tokyo) have been purchased while I was an employee.
     
  14. If I wasn't a figured maple top junkie and already had two Sadowsky basses, then I'd be riding the METRO ...stat!

    We're getting closer boys!!!!!!!!!!! :hyper: :D
     
  16. That's good news! According to Roger I'll see mine in July.
